Network Vendor report card C- at best.......Feeling Our Pain.....What a Cluster F***
7/1 - End of an Era for some Groups - Best of Luck to those going to UG - Thanks for your contributions at SGAS.
bGZ1 - 7/1 ???
Given the current climate, I'll keep taking the pay checks until the day comes.
If you don't take the Unitas position....you'll be out the door with nothing !
bGZ1 - if you have 10-20 years service why would you jump ship given the current climate? Do feel sorry for those who end up with next to nothing :-(
Notices are out......Hope the Interviews go well for those on the list........Sounds like SGAS saves more $$$ with the Transition process.......Sad state of affairs
bGZ1 - sorry to hear, that really is tough news. Thoughts and prayers for best possible outcome...
What does this mean for operations? Any changes coming for DCO...
Take it from someone who was let go - as nice as a package might be to have, unless you are in a position to support yourself/family for 6+months, you want to get out on your terms. Not theirs. This is a terrible time to be looking for a new job.
Good luck to all my former brothers and sisters.
What it means is it is time to leave now on your own terms before they fire you. The Sungard ship is a miserable sinking mess, and anyone/everyone who isn't part of the C-suite crew (with exception of a small handful of cronies out in the field) will be fired with no warning. Get out while you can.
dont wanna sugar coat it coz there will be mor layoffs but I heard it's the core wan and internet that goes there will still be all the stuff in the data center so its not all network i heard they are a layer 2 company and had to take that stuff with them to get the deal
Network conversion starts soon......"wave" good-bye!
“Unitas way or the highway” - what a douche
Agree... But. I still have not figured out how the SGAS owners make money with this approach.... They have never done a long term growth play, so my guess is there is an asset sell coming soon...
Well said....... No need for Sungardas staff so look out. It's like be sold but not being sold
Well, head of SGAS marketing is gone, so that means SGAS will not be developing any new offers. SGAS COO has said that it’s the Unitas way or the highway, which means sales engineering goes to Unitas. No announcement about SGAS ops resources being transferred over to Unitas, so that means Unitas doesn’t need additional head Count outside of any support for heritage SGAS offers (eg co-lo), ops headcount is now largely redundant to Unitas....
All of network goes to unitas, SungardAS handles a couple of products that hang off that network.
